Over 72,000 humans and their canine compadres proudly call Jonesboro, Arkansas home. Jonesboro began as a prosperous farming town and has since become one of the state’s most progressive cities. The city sits beside Crowley’s Ridge, a low lying terrain that was created during the famous 1812 earthquake. Jonesboro is the home of Arkansas State University and is an art lover’s dream. From the Arkansas State University Museum to the Delta Symphony and Forum Theater - whatever you love, Jonesboro’s fine arts community provides.
Your new best friend is waiting for you at Northeast Arkansans for Animals. For 11 years, NAFA has assisted with the rescue of thousands of pets from puppy mills, backyard breeders and pet stores. There is no physical shelter; all pets live with foster families to help them feel loved and happy while they wait for their furever homes. All donations and fees received from adoptions are put back into their numerous programs like low-cost vaccination and spay/neutering clinics, PAW Patrol, a youth education program, food banks and safe harbor programs for pets from domestic violence or abusive environments. Thank you NAFA for all of your selfless work to save our best friends!
Spend some quality time with your best dawgs at Lake Frierson State Park. It is located high atop Crowley’s Ridge and is 335 acres of peaceful, scenic natural beauty that stretches from Southern Missouri to the Mississippi River at Helena, Arkansas. You can fish from the pier year-round and the park features many playgrounds, a pavilion, and a boat launch! You can even rent fishing boats, kayaks and pedal boats. Did I mention the famous Dogwood Lane Trail? No Fido, this path isn’t named after you! It is aptly named due to the dozens upon dozens of flowering dogwood trees. PAWSitively GORGEOUS!
